Mix and Match: Where Does It All Go?

On Earth Day, the garbage guy
tossed mounds of garbage in the truck;
I stood and watched recyclables fly
all around the garbage truck.

On Earth Day, the garbage guy
came back and tossed recyclables in the truck;
I stood and watched garbage fly
all around the recyclables’ truck.

Some do their best to separate the stuff
but does it all get combined anyway?
Where does the garbage guy dump the stuff,
in an ever-growing landfill somewhere along the way?

We do our bit
responsibly to get rid of it;
where does it go?
Do we really ever know?
